A recent type of B-spline functions, namely trigonometric cubic B-splines, are adapted to the collocation method for the numerical solutions of the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky(KS) equation. Altough Trigonometric Cubic B-spline(TCB) function is continuous derivatives up to order 2, KS equation is splitted into a coupled system of equation including the first and second order derivatives to be able to the TCB collocation method. Crank-Nicolson method is applied for the time integration of the space discretized system resulted by TCB-spline approach. Some initial boundary value problems are solved to show the validity of the proposed method.
